Mira’s session 31 July 2020

Improve your cardiovascular health, core stability and body strength with this single weight intensive session. The 50-minute, full-body kettlebell workout for fat burning and lean muscle is the perfect exercise for the over 60s.

Mira takes you through a warm-up to prepare your body by replicating some of the movements used in the main workout.

This is followed by a kettlebell workout (grab your big liquid detergent bottle) for cardio, core and strength endurance. Using a kettlebell involve a lot of movement so your body is forced to use more effort to complete the exercise giving you a great cardio workout. Also, your core muscles will have to constantly be firing to stabilise you as using the kettlebell will change your centre of gravity. There are 4 rounds (intensive 20 seconds work with 10 seconds rest intervals) of the same 4 pairs of compound strength movements to hit simultaneously a few muscle groups to help improve fat burning and building of lean muscles.

The session ends with a gentle stretching routine for muscle tension relief.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SESSION

FIT FOR GOOD online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.

To make the most of each session:

  • Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
  • Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
  • Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
  • Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
  • Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
  • Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
  • Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
  • Play background music if it helps you relax
